Weird things found in old houses
So I went on a basement rampage this weekend, donning full hazmat gear to start really cleaning the basement, especially the walls, so I could repaint and have it stop feeling like a habitat for spiders and zombies. And what did I find?
Well, naturally, on top of an HVAC duct, 7+ feet off the floor and covered in 3/8" of grime, I found a record released by the Columbia Graphophone Company in 1915, featuring humorous stories told by a long-forgotten Vaudeville star. Wow! I can't play it, because it's a 78 and it's not in the best of shape, but that's what Google tells me the content is.
What weird finds have you come across?
